Palace – Break The Silence

“We’ve been watching this band for a couple of years now. This reverb heavy track is a perfect example of a band developing with time. Getting us all excited about their headline show at Sindercombe Social.”

Shura – What’s It Gonna Be?

“It wouldn’t be right to have a party in Shepherd’s Bush without West London based Shura. She’s headlining our outdoor stage, and this new single is a brilliant 80s dance-pop jam.”

Albin Lee Meldau – Let Me Go

“It’s pretty simple really, the man has one hell of a voice. Oh, and a very impressive live performance.”

“If you like gospel, blues, r’n’b, then you’ll dig Seramic. The recent single Found sounds a little crazy in parts. Just what I like.”

Bear’s Den – Auld Wives (pictured)

“The Den are back and they headline St Stephens Church at this year’s festival. Their new single is a little taster of what’s to come. 80s-inspired moments, a bit of The War On Drugs, and some big hooks. We don’t like, we love.”

Dan Croll – One Of Us

“More vibrant indie-pop from a brilliant songwriter who will be headlining Bush Hall at the festival.”

Vant – Fly By Alien

“They play guitars, they make a lot of noise, they sound cool and fierce.”

Joseph J Jones – The Video

“The latest signing to Communion Records, a big soulful voice and an impressive presence on stage.”

Gill Banks – Anxious?

“Raucous, post-rock math riffs. There’s even a bit of Radiohead in there.”

The Big Moon – Cupid E

One of the most exciting bands around at the moment. Big rock songs from the female four-piece. Big love for The Big Moon.
